states fight cc and cc testing

most (possibly all) states that adopted cc have groups fighting to stop cc 


45 states initially adopted CC.  Three have withdrawn from CC:

INDIANA, SOUTH CAROLINA, and OKLAHOMA


Three states are getting close to withdrawing from Common Core: LA, NC and MO.


Eight states could withdraw in the near future: WI, WY, GA, IA, OH, NJ, ME, and PA


AT LEAST 31 OF THE 42 STATES (74%) STILL "IN" CC CURRENTLY HAVE LEGISLATION PENDING TO DE-FUND, SLOW OR STOP CC (MAP).


It is the CC tests (SBAC and PARCC) that are the "glue" that hold CC together so some of the most promising news is the fact that about half the CC states have backed out of the government sponsored CC testing, SBAC or PARCC.  The bad news, Nevada is moving full steam ahead with SBAC.


THIS EDUCATION WEEK ARTICLE SAYS ONLY NINE STATES REMAIN IN PARCC, AND ONLY 17 REMAIN IN SBAC.  After the Ed. Week article was written: AZ WITHDREW FROM PARCC, TN WITHDREW FROM PARCC, and IA WITHDREW FROM SBAC.


One of the selling points of CC was that it would be a way to compare students in all states to each other.  But in reality NV students will only be able to be compare to students in, at most,15 other SBAC states.  Students in PARCC states will be able to be compared their students to students in, at most, six other states.  The reason I say "at most" is because each state can set its own passing score.  So for NV students the best case scenario for comparing students in other states is that all SBAC states set the same passing score as NV.  Same for PARCC, unless all states set the same passing score we will not be able to compare students in the seven PARCC states.


OF THOSE STILL "IN" CC THERE IS MAJOR OPPOSITION IN MOST (POSSIBLY ALL) OF THEM.
